Musty smell from vents

Hey everyone It's been raining here a lot lately and if I turn the air on ac or not it smells really musty like a wet dog. Anyway I can get rid of that smell quickly?

Change out your cabin filter for a start. It should be replaced once a year. Really easy to do. There's several how-to's on YouTube

Yup, under the hood right behind the battery. You have to lift two of the plastic push pins to reach in. It's pretty tight to get the tray that holds the filter in, but once you pull it off enough to get in, it's not too bad.

Just remember once you put the push pins back in, push the plastic down firmly across that whole section. Otherwise it will wobble and tap loudly in the wind.
